Description   EN   

HMCS Ojibwa (S72) was an Oberon-class submarine that served in the Royal Canadian Navy (RCN) and later the Canadian Forces Maritime Command (MARCOM). Originally intended for service with the Royal Navy as HMS Onyx (S72), the submarine was transferred to Canadian ownership before completion, and entered RCN service in 1965. Ojibwa operated primarily with Maritime Forces Atlantic until her decommissioning in 1998. In 2010, Ojibwa was laid up at CFB Halifax awaiting disposal, with the Elgin Militar

HMCS Ojibwa is named after one of Canada's largest groups of indigenous peoples. At the height of their power, their territory stretched from the shores of Lake Huron to the edge of the Prairies. Today, there are reserves in the Canadian provinces of Ontario and Manitoba and the American states of Minnesota and Wisconsin. Also known as the Chippawa, the name refers to 'people whose moccasins have puckered seams'. Those moccasins helped them to be silent hunters and warriors. HMCS Ojibwa is proud to bear the name; however, be assured that there are no puckered seams aboard this sleek lined beauty.

1 31 August 2017 Norshley Found it

FTF on August 31! I toured this sub a few years ago. The paint is starting to peel now. I guess the novelty of a sub in Port Burwell is wearing off. Photo taken. TFTC.
